Recovering from the trauma of sexual and domestic violence is a process that can lead you to find your own strength. Shaped by a faith identity incongruent with her reality as a survivor of sexual and physical abuse, Ellis Davis became intimately familiar with domestic violence and the church’s reluctance to intervene. Then, using marriages as a touchstone for self-discovery only led her into increasingly violent relationships. Even while navigating the process to wholeness as a woman police officer, Ellis Davis was not assured an expedient process through the courts nor protection from male police officers. Determined to define her worth for herself, Ellis Davis shares with liberating vulnerability decades of blessings and betrayals as she self-actualized from being a victim of domestic violence and sexual traumas to becoming victoriously accomplished and deeply content. This book provides hope for survivors, pastoral wisdom for seminarians, cultural sensitivity for service providers, and is useful as a guide for faith-based study groups.

31-Day Devotional from Bestselling Author and Bible Teacher John MacArthur In the busyness and trials of life, it's easy to drift away from the Savior. We may continue to go to church and even read the Scriptures and pray, but we can still lose our first love. Christ commended the church in Ephesus for their works and for their intolerance of false doctrine yet admonished them to remember and return to their first love--him. In the same way, our outward religiosity can mask an inner lack of love for our Savior. In this 31-day devotional, John MacArthur takes readers down a biblically prescribed path as they rediscover who Christ is, what he has done, and how they must respond. Each entry will move readers from understanding to application to reflection and prayer, with a goal of rekindling their first love for Christ. Makes a thoughtful gift for any believer.

Conjugial love is God as a feeling. It is the spiritual heat and light of every soul. It is the feeling of reaching-up as love to the Lord, together with the feeling of reaching-out as mutual-love to the neighbor. To receive conjugial love requires that we first will the feeling of love upwards and then outwards. In this way, we expand our sense-of-self to get a glimpse of the feeling of the four-fold rhythm of Divine order. Once the sensual rhythm of Divine order had been established as the feeling of love, it purifies our feeling of self of its identification and attachment with the physical body. This new spiritual perspective transforms our sense-of-self from personality to individuality, which then awakens the feeling of conjugial love. The feeling of conjugial love is our Path of Return. Within the flow of the feeling of conjugial love, we can sense our spiritual self, first as the feeling of profound peace, but then as higher states of love, as feelings of being infinite and eternal.

Why is your life the way it is? How do your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs affect your perception of the world around you? How does this perception influence your power, and therefore affect your state of Inner Peace? Most importantly, how can you approach your life--as it is right now--in such a way so as to liberate yourself from suffering and become established in a lasting state of Peace, in the Power to fulfil your purpose, and in absolute Presence to the perfection that you are? In this groundbreaking new book Peace, Power, and Presence, Jonathan Evatt brings clarity to key principles and perspectives on these and other challenging questions. The result is nothing short of your becoming empowered to recognize the ultimate answers already emerging from the essence within you. You will pierce through the many veils of deception so prevalent in the world today, and step into a Life of Freedom defined not by some external source of knowledge but by the immaculate wisdom of your own Being. Peace, Power, and Presence are the fulfilment of what each of us is striving to discover through all our many endeavours. Those people familiar with Jonathan's liberating approach to Life have been empowered by the realization that the fulfilment of Peace, Power, and Presence within them requires no beliefs, no dogma, no institutions, and no blind adherence to the many outdated religions and spiritual teachings in the world today. In what is set to become a key point of reference for those individuals interested in spiritual and human freedom, Jonathan makes no attempt to show you how to live your life. Instead, he shares with you a new way to approach the life you are already living--an approach that will bring into actualization your innate qualities of Enlightenment--for a Life of Freedom. AUTHOR SHORT BIO: Jonathan Evatt is a contemporary mystic, yogi, and spiritual pragmatist residing (primarily) in Aotearoa / New Zealand. He travels extensively--journeys that have taken him to more than 22 countries on all major continents of the world--whilst remembering, living, and sharing what he refers to as Wisdom for a Life of Freedom. He has been exploring, testing, and applying a wide array of spiritual, scientific, philosophical, aboriginal, and Inner knowledge since childhood. At this crucial turning point in human history he now feels moved to share a timely message.

We all want other people to like us and think well of us. But when we depend on the praise, admiration, or appreciation of others for our sense of self-worth, we become trapped in an exhausting and debilitating cycle of people-pleasing relationships where we always give and rarely receive. The most common advice we hear--Start putting your own needs first!-- doesn't work, because we do love helping other people! Thankfully, the solution to the people pleaser's "problem" isn't to fundamentally change who you are--it's to fundamentally change where you find your worth. In this freeing book, Dr. Mike Bechtle shows you stop letting your fears of rejection, criticism, invisibility, or inadequacy drive your actions and start rebuilding your sense of self-worth from the inside out. When you do, you'll discover that what you once thought of as a struggle is actually a strength.
